About the bomb shelter

The construction of a bomb shelter on the Veluwe, disguised as a sand dune, began in 1939. As of 22 July 1940, an important part of the collection is housed there. The works of art are packed in order of value and moved in small groups. Within a week, all the works are secured, and the museum can close its doors. On 15 April 1945, the museum is liberated by Canadian troops, who also help reinstall the art in the museum. The Kröller-Müller officially reopens on 6 October 1945.
